I think I'll have the pie.

After a rash of conservatives getting hit in their mugs by yummy pies, it was a liberal's turn. Only it wasn't a pie. It was a body-tempterature stream of tobacco juice in the face of Jane Fonda, who (like her right-wing conterparts) declined to press charges.

But it doesn't end there. I posted earlier on Sean Hannity's righteous indignation at this outbreak of "assaults" at the hand of young liberals that David Horowitz referred to as "fascists."

But it didn't take long for Hannity to use his Fox News piehole (hehhehheh) to mount a subtle defense of this latest "assault." Am I naive for thinking that there will come a day when he can't fool the public anymore?

If you act now, you can even check out a story on the media firestorm *snicker* generated by what Fox calls Ann Coulter's "controversial" photo on Time. Has anyone but Coulter said so much as a word about it?
